Let There Be Light
AVA04168VNB! - PMF 5019 - 1946

About 20% of all battle casualties in the American Army during World War II were of a neuropsychiatric nature.

The special treatment methods shown in this film, such as hypnosis and narcosynthesis, have been particularly successful in acute cases, such as battle neurosis. Equal success is not to be expected when dealing with peacetime neuroses which are usually of a chronic nature.

No scenes were staged. The cameras merely recorded what took place in an Army Hospital.


Run time 58' 05"

Subject: One of the MOST important films of the 20th century
I am left with tears of joy and sadness, of release, of relief and deep personal satisfaction that these men were treated with kindness, respect and compassion.

Recommended without reservation. A "must see"
